Squirrel hunting is underway in Tennessee and Arkansas and will begin in Mississippi Oct 17. Hunters will soon have a supply of nutcrackers in the freezer.

Select four young tender squirrels and try this recipe that's a far cry from the conventional fried or stewed recipe.

Cut squirrels in serving pieces and sprinkle with salt and lemon pepper to taste. Roll in flour, coating meat generously.

Place pieces in greased casserole with lid and sprinkle with rice (long grain and wild rice mixture can be used), peppers, celery, apples and mushrooms.

Cover with boiling water and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour or until meat is fork tender.

Serve with a green vegetable of choice and hot cornsticks. This dish is enough to serve four people.
